I'm Blithe10, otherwise known as Nikki. I've been a member of the BC community for a long time, but I've not been able to be as active as I'd like. I'm a big reader, though I go through phases where I can't find a book that suits me, so to counter this I tend to buy an inordanant number of books. I always have at least one book on the go, and I'm a recent convert to the Kindle, so I tend to have a book of short stories at hand too, because it would be criminal not to read in the bath! I do some of my best reading while soaking.

As I'm disabled looking for wild releases isn't something I've been able to do. It's the part of Bookcrossing that attracts me most, though, and so I've just started going through my books (which are threatening to bring the house down) and will be scattering wild releases in my wake until I have a reasonable 'to read' list.

There never seems to be time to read all the books I want to. My 'to read' list grows ever longer, and as fast as I read the list grows at a greater pace! I keep track of all the books I'm reading, have read recently and will read using Book Collector, though I used to do it on my website. Check it out if you are so inclined:
Blithe's Books
I like writing about the books I'm reading as I go...there's nothing like looking back on a whodunit and seeing how taken in you were by the author, or loving a book so much you get to the end without managing to write anything.

I love hearing from other readers, and am happy to receive messages about books I either should read or have read. If you see a book I've not released that you're interested in, let me know.

Please don't ask me for books to go into private collections
I've registered these books because I want to see them travel. I'm happy to send books out to people who'll pass them on, but if you're wanting books to keep please don't ask.

My Personal Collection
The books here are just the books I'm willing to let go, but I will consider lending books out from my personal collection as long as I get them back. Some of these books can be seen on my website, PM me if you see something you'd like to read but I'm not promising you'll get it:)

I'm currently unable to ship internationally
I'm a tad on the broke side right now, and have received a lot of book requests. I'm trying to fill as many as I can, but I'm having to limit postage to the UK for the time being until things quieten down a little.

Are you sure you want to delete this item? It cannot be undone.
